    Aside from V among all the GTA games where do you most enjoy playing it? Is it in a console or the PC? I personally prefer the PC experience since it has overall better performance and the mouse and keyboard combo really helps a lot when it comes to heavy gun fights. So what's your pick?

    Definitely PC for me. Better performance, modding (by far my favorite part of ANY game on PC) and being faster with a keyboard and mouse, I generally prefer those over a controller. Console is okay, and it'll do for now when it comes to GTA V. When it's out on PC, bye bye GTA V for PS3. :p

    I completely agree with you. I've always played GTA on PC and I loved the experience. You have modding abilities, great graphics, good frame-rate, keyboard and mouse, etc. You can also hook up a controller and play GTA with it on the PC if you want to.

    PC all the way, why should there even be a question? PC has everything that consoles can offer and more. You can use a controller with PC and basically get the same experience but with almost certainly better performance and the possibility to enhance the game with mods.

    I'm all for the PC on this one. Overall performance is better, graphics is better and the controls are better. However, on consoles you have the freedom of the controller, it gives you less accuracy but hell you can relax your back when you play.

    I never had a game console, so I would have to say that I prefer a pc when it comes to playing GTA. I know, it's biased since I only have 1 choice, lol. But I think my hands would get tired hugging the controller for many consecutive hours.

    I like the PC for playing this type of games over the consoles, because I think that it is a better experience. I like using mouse+keyboard to play the games and I didn't get used to shooting around on a gamepad, it's just not the same. I also think that the graphics on the PCs are always better than the graphics on the consoles, that keeps me gaming on the PC instead of on the consoles when I get the chance to do so.

    I prefer by a lot to play GTA on my PC. Every GTA that I tried on the console and the PC I prefered the PC. I don't really like to shoot with a controller, so thats a big reason to for why I prefer PC.

    Tell me about it. But what I really hate the most about console is that I have to hook the thing to my TV every time which is a pain in the butt because I had to take the TV out of it's shelf just plug in the console.

    This with be a non-stop debate, but personally i think it depends, I play FPS games on PC while RPG on the console, PC has some disadvantages, It costs more than the console and you have to upgrade yearly to cope up with the standard specifications of the game, every year they release a game that requires a higher graphics card or processor, so you have to take note of that. On the other hand consoles, you pay one time then it will last for about half a decade and you just need a better T.V and you're set. I'm actually leaning towards the gameplay of the game and not the graphics itself, but for some people maybe that's a factor. It all comes down to own personal preference.

    I prefer playing games on PC. But GTA is an exception, I like playing GTA on a console. It's easy and comfortable to play with.

    I prefer playing GTA games on consoles. It's so much easier for me to control the characters with a Dualshock than with mouse and keyboard. The only GTA I have played on PC has been GTA San Andreas, and even though it was playable the controls felt very alward to me. Ever since then I've just stuck to consoles for my GTA fix.

    I'm a PC guy 100%. There's just too many advantages to owning a PC- the upgrading part being the most important one. But I do admit that playing on consoles is a bit more comfortable than playing on a PC.

    I used to buy GTA games for PC, but then I started buying PlayStation versions of GTA, because my PC has become too weak. For me the PC version is the best, because aiming is better and easier.

    I really don't like playing games on the PC, I prefer the feel of using a console, but I've grown up playing consoles. For someone who grew up playing PC games I'm sure they'd be the opposite.

    I used to like more PCs, but lately I start to come to the conclusion that GTA is more fun when playing on consoles.

    I tend to wait for the PC release of every GTA game actually. As of now I haven't played GTA V because it's only available for the consoles and I have to wait until next year to get my copy of GTA V for the PC.

    I prefer playing on PC because it just feels better and the performance and the graphics look way better than it's console counterpart. Another point is the controls. The keyboard and mouse combo is a winner when it comes to GTA. You can execute head shots with ease and you can move faster and turn around more quickly using the keyboard and the mouse.

    The only problem that I have with the PC is the lag. If you're PC isn't powerful enough to run the game then you wouldn't enjoy it in the first place.

    Regarding gun fights especially, yes definitely, I never manage to shoot anything on a console, especially in fps games without aim assist and that just kinda takes the fun out of it. Anyway I personally prefer PC because I am a PC guy, I've been brought up with a PC, only played on consoles later on with my friends, never got or completely liked the (in my opinion) awekward controls compared to straightforward keyboard and move that resonate with direction and movement and it just makes more sense to me.

    Plus I would play the PC release for the fact that you have mods, something which is lacking on PS or probably really hard to install of possible at all.

    I would go with playing GTA on a PC over a console because of the different Mods that you can add-and the new Space Mod really looks like it would be quite fun-shooting aliens in outer space and so on. Also its getting cheaper to play on the PC everyday and graphics are getting better as well.
